I wrote about the way our family honors Memorial Day over at the GenealogyBank blog. You can read Remembering Our American Veterans on Memorial Day 2013 here.

In 2011 in  a blog posting for Memorial Day, I provided a short history of the holiday and the poem In Flanders Fields. You can read that post here.

To learn more about the men and women in your family who fought for our freedom, check out the webpage Research Military Records on the National Archives website.

Have a safe and meaningful Memorial Day.
